The World War II Attacks on Jung: Eleanor Bertine's and Esther Harding's Perspectives— William Schoenl
Keywords: allegations, pro-Nazi, Freudians, Jungians, World War II, manuscripts
This article shows the beginnings and developments of allegations in 1944–45 in the United States that Jung was pro-Nazi. It is based on unpublished manuscripts in the Jung Archives, the F.B.I. reports on Jung, and other primary sources. The attacks on Jung were centered in New York City; Bertine and Harding, two prominent analytical psychologists there, kept him informed of the attacks and attempted to answer them. In unpublished drafts of an answer to an attack in the American Journal of Psychiatry, Bertine and Harding persuasively demonstrated that Jung was anti-Nazi during World War II. …

Boxing Piety's Shadow — Dennis Patrick Slattery
Keywords: piety, shadow, belief, myth, Jung, destruction, exclusivity,
The nature of piety's psychology in the global wars today invites a reconsideration of what piety hides, what the shadow of piety conveys, and the destructive impulses that stem from this shadow. What Jung suggests about the shadow's nature and function serves as the ground for a meditation on the shape and contours of piety's distortion today. As a psychological reality, piety can move individuals to create powerful boundaries against others of different beliefs as well as bring nations to war. By inviting piety's shadow to surface, we may be able to better see what the original definition of piety has to offer creatively to today's cultures.
